Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma said all these years, members of the indigenous communities inhabiting in the State did not have documentary land records to legally claim their possession over the plot of land under their possession since time immemorial. Realising this irony, the State government brought about amendment into the land rights Act, the Chief Minister said. This led to the government deciding to provide land rights to the landless indigenous people, the Chief Minister stated. He said, β€œI am happy to have started the process of distributing land pattas under Mission Basundhara 2.0 from Dhemaji district, as this process will enable our indigenous landless people to have official documents over his or her plot of land”.

The Chief Minister said the distribution of land pattas is also an initiative on the part of the government to empower the people. He added that 84 per cent of the beneficiaries under this scheme are from the scheduled caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST)/Other Backward Class (OBC) and other backward communities and therefore, granting them land pattas will ensure their empowerment.
Education Minister Dr Ranoj Pegu, Member of Parliament Pradan Barua also spoke on the occasion.
